Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old?

Does anyone know if there will be a second season of Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old?

Has anyone else noticed that all the contestants on the show are teachers, about to become teachers, principals, firemen, nurses and police. Now I know why I didn’t get on. And what’s scary is the teachers are failing on the simplest questions. These people are teaching our children!! Know wonder the country’s education system is having problems if this is the calibre of our school teachers. The Ministry of Education must be called to account. If they were my kids teachers i’d try to get them fired.

The bell has rung and it’s time for class! The smash hit game show, Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old?, gives New Zealanders the chance to win big money – or face the shame of being beaten by a bunch of 10-year-old school kids.

Hosted by Dominic Bowden in the role of headmaster, the contestants on Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old? have the opportunity to win up to $100,000. All they have to do is answer primary school level questions – and prove they really are smarter than the resident cast of 10-year-olds.
The contestants are even allowed to cheat! They can sneak a peek at one of the 10-year-old’s answers and decide whether or not to use it. They can copy a 10-year-old’s answer. And if they get an answer wrong, one of the kids could even save them with a correct answer.

What could be easier? Beating primary-schoolers at their own game should be like taking candy from kids, right? Wrong! This hilarious and addictive game show reveals that even the smartest adults find it tough to outsmart a smarty-pants 10-year-old.

If they beat the odds – and those brainy kids – and they could win $100,000! But, if they fail to remember those primary school facts and figures, they’ll have to face the national television audience and admit, “I am not smarter than a 10-year-old”.

“It’s a show that tests the contestants not on what they know, but what they have forgotten,” says Dominic Bowden. “This is a new and challenging show for me – it’s quite different to my usual formats. The kids are fantastic; they are the real stars of this show and I know that New Zealand is going to fall in love with them.”

Tune in for all the fun, and test your own knowledge to see if you are smarter than a 10-year-old, TV2 Sunday 9 September, 7.30pm.

My mother and I went to the open casting call to be a contestant on Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old. Unlike Deal or No Deal and The Rich List, where there were hundreds lining up to be on the shows, there was hardly anyone there. It started at 9am and we turned up at about 10.30 and we were the 9th and 10th people to audition. I only heard about it on this site so I don’t know where else they advertised it but it looks like they needed more people. A few more turned up when we were leaving. Maybe people were getting some extra sleep before the long night of America’s Cup and All Black rugby and were still in bed. There is a lot of cash to be won people… don’t you want it?

Would you like the chance to win $50,000? Well here’s your chance to head back to class and win!

TV2 are holding open casting calls for this exciting new game show on Saturday June 23rd 9am – 5pm at Eyeworks Touchdown Television, 5 Graham Street, Auckland City.

All ages from 20+ are welcome to apply. You must be energetic, outgoing, competitive and be able to correctly answer primary school questions for the chance to win big $$$$. Recordings take place in Auckland. You must be in driving distance of Auckland city to audition for the show. Please bring your driver’s licence or passport with you for ID.
